The White River

The White River flows in two forks across most of Central and Southern Indiana, creating the largest watershed contained entirely within the state. The West Fork of the White River rises as an insignificant creek near the Ohio border in central Indiana and winds gently westward. By the time it passes Muncie, however, it is a substantial river. Near the center of the state it abruptly turns south as it builds from the strength of hundreds of creeks and streams. One of those, Fall Creek, marks the chosen site for the state capital. Indianapolis now overshadows the confluence with the landmarks of urbanization.

Further south the scenery changes to a broad, more open valley, but soon the river passes through hill country as it travels into Martinsville. The valley opens once more as the river continues its southwestern flow through Indiana’s southern coal fields and sandy farmland. The West and East Forks finally combine to form the boundary between three counties as the White River flows another fifty miles to feed the Wabash River.

The banks of the West Fork are lined with woods of varying depth and include species such as maples, oaks, sycamore, river birch, cottonwood and others.
